Background: Myocardial infarction (MI) is one of the most importance diseases which lead to complications in heart structure. Echocardiography is a useful and non-invasive procedure for diagnosis and prognosis in MI patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the echocardiographic changes among myocardial infarction patients in Beasat Hospital during 2003
Material & Method: This is a descriptive-observational study with consecutive sampling. Data were collected by questionnaire and then were analyzed by using SPSS software.
Results: One hundred thirty eight patients with MI were included. Echocardiography was performed in all patients. Most frequent valvular disorders in ≥70 years old was MR (33%) and TR (35%). These were more prevalent in males (69%) and patients with anteroseptal infarction (28%). Decrease of ejection fraction was more seen in ≥70 years old (35%), inferior infarction (28%), and males (76%). Kinetic disorders (hypokinesia and akinesia) were more prevalent in ≥70 years old (27%), inferior infarctions (30%), and males (75%). Ventricular aneurysm was common in ≤39 years old (50%), 60-69 years old (50%), males (100%), antroseptal infarctions (50%), and extensive anterior infarction (50%).
Conclusion: Mechanical complications after MI which are detectable in echocardiography are common. This is more prevalent in males, ≥70 years old patients, and inferior and antroseptal infarctions, but ventricular aneurysm is common in ≤39 years old, 60-69 years old, and in antroseptal and extensive anterior infarctions.
